The Best Stuffing Recipe

Ingredients

  • - 1 Package of Bread Cubes plain
  • - 1 can of Water Chestnuts diced
  • - 3 to 4 Celery Stalks diced
  • - 1 large Carrot diced or grated
  • - 1/2 medium Sweet Onion diced
  • - Chopped Nuts whichever nut your prefer - I used walnuts
  • - Chopped Mushrooms optional - I do not use mushroom
  • - 1 to 2 teaspoons Sage I use 1 teaspoon
  • - 1 teaspoon Parsley
  • - Salt & Pepper to taste
  • - 1 stick Butter
  • - 1 1/2 cups Broth from Cooked Turkey Gizzards or turkey broth

Instructions

  • Cook gizzards from turkey in about 1 1/2 cups of water (or you can use turkey broth).
  • Melt butter in separate pan.
  • Add water chestnuts, celery, carrot, onion, nuts, mushrooms (optional), sage, parsley, and salt & pepper to the bread cubes and mix well.
  • Pour melted butter evenly over mixture and mix with a large spoon until well mixed.
  • Pour a small amount of broth into bread mixture.
  • Stir well and gently squeeze a small amount of stuffing in your hands to see if it slightly sticks together.
  • Pour more broth in the stuffing until the stuffing is in the beginning stage of sticking together. Don't get it too wet or sticky (I ended up using the entire 1 1/2 cups).
  • Bake at 350 degrees in a covered casserole dish with tin foil on top of the stuffing for about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Then, remove tin foil and lid and bake another 5 to 10 minutes until browned.
